12 ounce bottle poured into a New Belgium glass.

This beer pours up a nice medium gold with not much head and not a whole lot of lacing. It gets better from there. The nose is floral and pine with a little bit of spiciness to it. Taste is good. Up front I get some sweet maltiness with the citrus tanginess and a good bitterness on the finish. No need to try and pick out all the subtlies. It is just a good beer. Mouthfeel was adequate carbonation and no nasty aftertaste. Try it if you haven't.

This beer is solid, just like the Hazed and Infused I sampled from Boulder was. Orange color, moderate off-white head that shrinks a bit but some remains creating really nice lacing. The aroma is hoppy with fruity notes and is pleasant. The flavor is a nice crisp bitter hoppy bite with some tangy fruits. Hops are clearly the dominant flavor. Bitter and very dry finish. Definitely a solid IPA and I would for sure get it again.

Served in a pint glass from a 12oz brown bottle,crimp on cap.

Golden/coppery color.a creamy white head lacing down the glass,very retentive.
A clean aroma piney,very citrusy,a sweet carmelly malt nose a very inticing aroma.
The taste was piney,citrusy,a bit grapefruity,malt tastes of sweet caramel and a little nutty taste with a honeyness to the sweet taste.
A very nicely balanced flavor with a sharp,crisp bitterness to add to a perfect finish.
A medium mouthfeel,a slight cloying,smooth,subtle not overpowering
Highly drinkable and very enjoyable, a must try IPA.

12 oz bottle from mix pack, 2 months from drink by date, guessing that makes it 4 months old, not ideal not terrible though.

A: Somewhere between an amber and yellow, "west coast" ipa in color. Pours a small white head, dissipated pretty quickly, with a some lacing but not very much.

S: Not overwhelming, citrus based hops, quite sweet in flavor, sour orange, not much maltiness, smells good though.

T: Hops right up front, initially an earthy/grassy/marijuana flavor of hops, then a very sweet citrus, more pineapple than grapefruit, not overly bitterr. For color has a nice malt backbone, wasnt expecting this, not overly dark but a nice molasses/rasin bread flavor.

M: A tad thin, decent to low carbonation, had a oily slick to it though, tasted more like a 6.5% than 7.2% (not necessarily good or bad, flavor wasnt overwhelming) One of the more session-able ipas.

O: Solid brew from Boulder, i recall it being much hoppier when fresher. Nothing crazy but its a good brew from a good value brewery. You defnitely get your moneys worth and wont be disappointing.

Growler from CBX. Served in a Dogfish Head shaped pint glass...

A: Pours a rusty gold with two fingers of cream head; a steady bubble stream keeps retention going until the glass is empty, leaving some hefty gobs of lace.

S: Grapefruit; light resiny hop notes; a touch grassy; caramel malt sweetness in the background.

T: Orange rind; nice citrus flavors - almost tropical fruit esque, but not quite; very sweet (IPA-wise) on the end - something a little drier would be nice; not crushingly bitter.

M: Full bodied; medium carbonation; a smidge viscous; kinda heavy, but very smooth.

O: Wow... this is a very drinkable IPA; the malt sweetness definitely cuts the dryness typical of others in this style, but in the long run that does help out the drinkability factor; a very enjoyable - and one of the best “bargain” IPAs; if there was such a thing as a session American IPA, Mojo would get my vote.

Served on tap at Mad Mex in standard pint glass. Pours a copper color, somewhat hazy. No head but likely from the bartender's pour. Reeks of hops: citrus and floral aromas. Hop character shines through on the taste. Gives a nice resiney aftertaste. Very slight malt background. A very solid IPA. If in the mood for hops this one's a go-to.

Boulder Tasting At UPick6 in Erie PA. Poured a clear light copper color with a white head,into a plastic cup. The beer did not have much of a smell at all, light and lemony. The taste was very balanced with a little fruitiness and malts coming through. No pine flavor in this one. Very decent beer but does not compare well to other IPA's in my opinion. I could drink a lot of these in the Summer. Wow....7.2% ! ? I didn't notice any alcohol.

Mojo pours a deep orangey gold color with a large lid of fuzzy lemon cream.

This beer smells all hoppy and delicious. Lots of citrus fruitiness, oranges, grapefruits, and lemons, with pine needles and grass.

The flavor has a solid caramel maltiness to balance out the awesomeness of the hops. They dance in with pineapples and sweet citrusy orange, bitter rind included, followed by lemon grass and pine sap flavors that add to the pleasant bitterness with a touch of earthy spiciness to it. Medium-full in body with a perfect amount lightly oily, creamy-fuzzy carbonation.

Great IPA from Boulder Beer. Gotta love Amarillo. Drink one and get your mojo workin'.

There is no freshness date on the bottle. This has an amber colour with a rather head and is fairly cloudy. When I sniffed into the bottle it seemed very much a herbal hop concoction with a rather metallic nose, but in my glass it smells much sweeter.

It adopts the numerous miniscule bubbles approach to carbonation and begins sweetly before giving way to a bitter orange rind hoppiness. Not bad at all, but not oustanding for an IPA of this strength says this spoiled adopted Oregonian (when I lived in Ohio I would have swooned over this stuff). It seems to get sweeter and change from orange rind to ruby red grapefruit as it warms. Don't serve too cold!

Had on tap at Moan and Dove. The drink had a murky orange appearance with some decent lacing. Faint citrus and orange flavor aromas gently permeated from the drink; nothing too special. Moderately strong bitterness was a little off-putting in its taste department. Good carbonation. Overall, it was pretty decent but a little too strong in taste.

12 oz bottle. Pours out a bit lighter than I expected. Very light tan color with a small white head. Not very effervesant.

The smell is just great. Citrus and pine notes come through. Not too over-powering but just right. Taste is well balanced. Slightly sweet malt and piney hops come through. Grapefruit and orange are present as well.

Overall this is a great beer. Well balanced with plenty of body. I am amazed at how balanced this beer is. Great job!

Pours a brilliant copper hue with a light smattering of fizz on top. The clarity is nearly perfect and the carbonation dances to the top refreshing the foam.

The aroma is suggestive of mild floral hops and seems to be missing the aggressive tail of whatever they chose (Centennial?). Its a delicate aroma and is reminiscent of the all-good properties of Dreadnaught.

The taste doesn't have the same all-good properties though - and it almost seems like the aroma got the good parts of the hop and the taste got the brash parts. There's a mild sweet malt body that isn't enough to compete with what starts as a somewhat pine sap bitterness and only gets harsher once swallowed. Its almost like a purely bittering hop like nuggets were used so there is no mild delicate floral or citrus, just caustic.

Its not a very encouraging beer when the aftertaste is like pine needle. So its not the most drinkable, but I'll make an effort. It could really use some milder hop as a dry hop to smooth the transition.
